Line Of Duty was the most watched show on Sunday night as its latest series came to an end.

The final episode of the BBC One police drama's fourth series posted a fourth weekly consecutive rise with 7.5 million viewers.

The series high is up 900,000 viewers on last weekend and up almost 3 million on three weeks ago.

The final instalment of the six-part series topped the night's viewing figures, with Antiques Roadshow getting 5.4 million and Countryfile securing 6.1 million viewers earlier on BBC One.

Overall, series 4 of Line Of Duty averaged 5.7 million viewers for its latest run, climbing from an average audience of 5 million for its first two episodes to an average of 7 million for its final two.

The BBC has already confirmed a fifth series of Line Of Duty following the former BBC Two show's move to BBC One this year, however show creator Jed Mercurio has said it's unlikely to air before 2019.

Back to last night's TV ratings and over on ITV, The Durrells and Grantchester both continued for new series with 4.9 million and 3.8 million viewers respectively.

The Durrells was down 600,000 viewers on last weekend's opener while Grantchester - which clashed with Line Of Duty at 9PM - was 600,000 below last Sunday's opening episode.

Earlier in the evening, Jason Manford's new wacky gameshow Bigheads continued to 2.4 million viewers, down 400,000 viewers on last weekend's opener.
